  1. Put the average budget and profit per each film. Also add the film banners, because it affect a lot for how much screen you get around the world. That would be better to see.

    SRK’s My Name is Khan, JTHJ and Raes were only good films in the entire decade.

    From the result of your analysis:
    SRK is done?! I think Aamir and Salman are the box office King. Akshay Kumar has grown in terms of the box office.
    Aamir makes a film in 2 years. Have a huge budget. I think Aamir’s movie marketing cost is about Akshay Kumar’s one film budget.
    Aamir’s Dhoom and Thugs of Hindustan were the most non-sense big-budget film of the decade. Only earned what it earned because of the movie banner and stardom.
    PK and Dangal are the best films of the decade for him as well as within the top films of the decade overall.
    Salman Khan movies earn huge box office only because of his huge fan following and huge ticket price and big Diwali and Christmas solo release.

    My result of the analysis and winners for some categories:
    -Box office King : Aamir Khan
    – Most successful films: Akshay Kumar (with almost 30 films, most of them are hit, he only has 3/4 flop films
    in terms of box-office and that too came early in the decade )
    – Most consistent actor: Akshay Kumar (with back-to-back hit films)
    – Content-based film: Akshay Kumar
    – Most profits (in a decade) – Akshay Kumar
    – Variety of the movie – Akshay Kumar (with all kind of genres each year)
    – Most profitable for distributers (all films combined) – Akshay Kumar
    – Increased in Stardom – Akshay Kumar
    – Declined in Stardom – SRK
    – Most commercial films – Salman (almost all movies are commercial except a few)
